Very intriguing excerpt from Dan Brown's newest novel.  I am looking forward to looking for clues, learning about far-flung places in Spain and elsewhere in Europe, and discovering history as I read this one.  Have to keep my phone handy for research!  Already bought the full version from Amazon for delivery tomorrow!

Thank you for the excerpt - it was an incredibly thrilling read and I can't wait to pick up the book and read it all the way through. Dan Brown's style is completely unique and he manages to capture his audiences in every book that he writes.

Billionaire inventor, investor, computer scientist, and game theorist Edmond Kirsch has gathered together the finest collection of leaders and thinkers of the world in Bilbao, Spain's Guggenheim Museum. Among those are Professor Robert Langdon, one of Edmond's former teachers and a friend whose discussions of art, philosophy, and religion are an inspiration to them both. 

Kirsch has made a discovery that he thinks is going to rock the foundations of all modern religions and of everyone in the world. He believes that every Creation story we've been told is wrong, and he thinks he has the chops to explain what how the universe really did come into being. 

And all that is just the first chapter. 

Dan Brown is back, with all the things we love about him. I only got to read the first chapter, so I have not yet gotten to experience the moment of the Mickey Mouse watch, but already I am so into this story that I will have to buy it Tuesday. Origin is going to be fascinating, no matter where the story goes. And I, for one, am so excited about the ride! 



Excerpt for Origin was provided by Doubleday through NetGalley.com, with many thanks.

I've been a long time fan of this series and I can't wait to have to have the new book in my hands. The excerpt was very promising and had the same compelling feel as the previous books.

The ARC consists only of the prologue and first chapter, and after those im completely hooked and dying to read the rest of the novel!

Enjoyed reading the excerpt of the Origin, wished I had more to read now. As always Dan Brown just sucks you in from the beginning making you not want to put his books down. Loved what I've read so far!

Ebook Excerpt/Fiction:  I'm a big fan of Dan Brown and I cannot wait to read his newest book.  This was intriguing, but I wanted more than the prologue and first chapter.  His writing is on par and I'm already hooked.

I was kindly enough to receive an excerpt from Dan brown’s latest book ‘Origin’. Sadly I can’t post it here but written below is a snippet to quench your curiosity.
I have alway been a huge fan of Dan Brown’s books and after having read what I read… I can’t wait to read the rest of the book!!

Compelling from the word go,  exactly like his other work. Beautifully written, in which it differs from some of it.

Another sample given to be by NetGally of the upcoming release of Origin by the very talented Dan Brown and the return of Robert Langdon. 

Dan Brown has a way with his words and language that gets you wanting more. 

Having only read chapter one in which the we find Edmond Kirsch about to devastate global religion I am really excited to get the book and see where this all goes and how Robert will save the day again

Dan Brown cannot fail! Although only a taster with the prologue and first chapter, it's more than enough to realise the author has lost none of his game. Wonderful read I can't wait to read the full fat version! Superb.

Typical Dan Brown opening but intriguing nonetheless. I won't be rushing to the bookstore to buy Origin but I do think I'll read it at some point and enjoy it lightly.

The excerpt of Origin has piqued my interest enough that I will most likely buy the book when it comes out. I've enjoyed Dan Brown's Robert Langdon series (well, with the exception of the one in Washington D.C.) for the most part because of the suspense , adventure, and travel aspects. Origin's first few pages set the stage for another exciting romp through western Europe.

Eagerly await the full novel. The first chapter promises another great adventure in Robert Langdon’s career.  Tuesday October 3rd cannot come soon enough!

I got the chance to read an excerpt of the DAN BROWN'S NEXT BOOK!!! OKAY, THAT'S ENOUGH CAPITAL LETTERS I SHOULD PROBABLY CALM DOWN... I'm calm.

This next book is shaping up to be even better than the Da Vinci Code, which is my favorite in the series so far!

Kirsh, an old student of Langdon's, has since become a celebrity for his futurist outlook and semi-prophetic ability to predict market trends. He requests a meeting with the three preeminent religious scholars of the world, revealing he has found a new technology that will shake the world of religion to its core. Later, Langdon is invited to a mysterious dinner at the Guggenheim Bilbao in Spain, where Kirsh is revealing a great project. The excerpt ends.

Origin starts right off the bat with modern art, religion, and a mysterious dinner. I, for one, cannot wait for this new installment. I recommend reading Inferno and the Da Vinci Code first, as they'll give you a good background as we all eagerly await this next installment.

I must say that my interest is piqued for the rest of the story to come next week. From what I read, the story fits in perfectly with the other four Robert Langdon novels, so if you love, or even like them, you will probably feel the same from installment number five. I am certainly excited to continue reading this book. The excerpt gets five stars, and I hope the rest of the book does as well.

Robert Langdon is back again and it seems from this excerpt that this book with surpass all the previous titles. Puzzles? Check. Controversial topics? Check. Secret societies? Check. Super intelligent sidekick? Check.  (if the prologue has any weight- Kirsch is shaping up to be a great character!) cannot wait for the full release of this novel!
